Women Only Jihad
Channel 4 Monday 30 October 2006, 8pm

There are around 1,600 mosques in Britain. Well over half do not allow women access to worship and hardly any allow women a say on how the mosques are managed and run. Journalist Tazeen Ahmad follows a group of young Muslim women who are waging a determined campaign to force these mosques to open up. She also investigates the recent Muslim scarf/veil controversies and speaks to some of the young women who choose to wear them.

GUYS IF U LIVE IN THE UK WATCH IT!
I seen the advert it looks like battle of the sexes. Dont think is going to potray Muslim men in a good light.

I think watchin programs like these just make you more angry.. so i try to avoid them.


Why not use that time to tell someone about the good things about islaam, instead of watching something which put's people off islaam?

thank you, Fi_sabilillahi - my intention was to watch that program ("women only Jihad") but since I have checked out the websites you suggested , I'm going to avoid watching it. Thank you again (for the websites- they were really useful)

No, i meant that they only show programs like this to cause more hatred against the muslims and to make the muslims get sad/angry. So i prefer not to watch them.


I think the sister meant the links in my sig, Allaahu a'lam.



Sorry if i offended you.

Cause more hatred, brother?

This is an important issue, and if sisters are just going to be fobbed off when they alone approach the heads of the mosques then something else has to be done. If men are made out to look back then it is down to their own doing. Woman's purpose in life isn't to be a baby making machine and being tied to the kitchen sink.

Just to comment on the debate the programme will probably be dealing with, I believe that Muslim women should be allowed to pray in the mosque if they so choose. The question of space etc is not really valid in my view - my university Islamic society and my local masjid are both pretty small (the former is two rooms and the latter a small, two-storey house). Thing is, they both found a way to incorporate sisters facilities - in the Islamic society, there is simply a male room and a female room, and in the mosque the men pray upstairs and in the attic, while the women pray downstairs and in a back hall. Simple. Where there's a will there's a way.

I'm also intrigued about these programmes I mean it's an issue which needs to be discussed but just like every other programme done by kufar on islam they put their spin on it, remember that "What muslims Want" Programme they kept making out the people who were pro-jihad were lunatics and just had a bais opionion from the get go so I wouldn't be suprised if they did something similar, this issue should be delt with inhouse it's a shame it's come to this kufar airing our dirty laundary in public while we don't even attempt to ressolve it.

lol ironically in my mosque, they let the sisters in 1st, and if the sisters turn up in their numbers, then they block upstairs like let the sisters have the upstairs :p so if there aint any space for the brothers downstairs :p dey dont let us in :p so i know a mosque where they dont let men :embarrass

I didn't get to watch the documentary but from what I saw I was given the impression that women are not allowed into masjids or given rights that they should be. The Masjid that I pray at is only attended by men and even though there is space upstairs, women dont attend. I'm not really sure why women dont attend but my guess would be it is not because they not allowed but because they might think they aren't. If women want to pray at masjids the they should be given the right but it all should be done through a sensible process.

Channel 4 seems to be showing 2 or 3 shows per week about Islam and they will be showing another one next week, they made the advert of it quite intresting with first title 'Hatred' and then an image of men with guns and masks talking about jihaad.

I severely dislike MPAC(fools) - theyve got some good ideas but they go about htem completely the wrong way. they expect everything done now! they need sabr, and they need to learn to shout less and listen more.

astaghfirullah, sisters approaching brothers outside a masjid, and did uyou see them all sat in the cafe together - my, my, they were really observing ther ules of hijab and modesty there.

i dont see wht the big deal is...there are many mosques which let women into them. why not go there? and improve their faciliteis instead of people bashing at other mosques?

Brave they may be but there are certain etiquettes and manners one most obersve. How can you stand outside the masjid on a friday infront of couple of hundreds of brothers and demand sisters be let in. You know subhan Allah...you have to look at the bigger picture.. ok these brothers were in the wrong...the issue i believe was a culture problem... they could have approached someone from the community, they could have got calm not angrey brothers to speak to them. And to record all this? Allahu Akbar! How low! Some of them where not even from the local community....

My dear sister..if people didnt know about these problems..then why would i take a loudspeaaker and tell people im doing something about such and such family problem??? the thing is sister..the nonmuslims KNOW our problems..we have to show them that we are doing something about it..you saw in the video courageous muslims doing something about domestic violence..about not having the same access to mosques as men etc etc..we have many problems..sweeping it under the carpet isnt going to solve a thing!!

I would like to point out I think Masjids should provide space for Muslim woman to use. I think in this day and age our sisters should hold circles etc as it Insha'Allah will help strengthen their Iman, Taqwa, Knowledge etc. They are the centre of the family and through them many other families will unite Insh'Allah.

The Masjids in my area allow woman to enter, Even on FRIDAY! :uuh: I mean there is no space in the Mosque for all the brothers to pray, and they let the sisters in :uuh:which I am against BUT the food they bring is :playing: and the Iftar food was :playing::playing::playing:

Sisters do not have to pray in the mosque, I think its better for them to pray at home but at the same they should have their space in the Mosque to do other Islamic activities Insha'Allah

This documentary has done nothing but added a bullet to the guns of the enemies of Islam, the title "Woman only Jihad" (:uuh:) just says it all for me . You don't go to non-muslims with problems of the ummah and expect them to fix it, after we consider ourselves to be of the rightly guided don't we? Honestly in what way does showing disunity amongst the Ummah and arguments amongst muslims help the non-muslims perspective of Islam? Without a shadow of a doubt more bad then good has been done by this documentary... how the enemies of Islam must be drowning in their own laughter right now...

Praise be to Allah.

There is no doubt that a woman’s prayer in her house is better for her than praying in the mosque, as is indicated by the Sunnah of the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him). He said: "Do not prevent your women from going to the mosque, even though their houses are better for them." (Reported by Abu Dawud in al-Sunan, Baab maa jaa’a fee khurooj al-nisaa’ ilaa’l-masjid: Baab al-tashdeed fee dhaalik. See also Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 7458).

Whenever a woman prays in a place that is more private and more hidden, that is better for her, as the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: "A woman’s prayer in her house is better than her prayer in her courtyard, and her prayer in her bedroom is better than her prayer in her house." (Reported by Abu Dawud in al-Sunan, Baab maa jaa’a fee khurooj al-nisaa’ ilaa’l-masjid. See also Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 3833).

Umm Humayd, the wife of Abu Humayd al-Saa‘idi reported that she came to the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) and said: "O Messenger of Allaah, I love to pray with you." He said: "I know that you love to pray with me, but praying in your house is better for you than praying in your courtyard, and praying in your courtyard is better for you than praying in the mosque of your people, and praying in the mosque of your people is better for you than praying in my mosque." So she ordered that a prayer-place be built for her in the furthest and darkest part of her house, and she always prayed there until she met Allaah (i.e., until she died). (Reported by Imaam Ahmad; the men of its isnaad are thiqaat (trustworthy)).

But the fact that praying at home is preferable does not mean that that women are not permitted to go to the mosque, as is clear from the following hadeeth:
From ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar, who said: "I heard the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace be upon him) say: ‘Do not prevent your women from going to the mosque if they ask your permission.’" Bilaal ibn ‘Abdullah said, "By Allaah, we will prevent them." (Ibn ‘Umar) turned to him and told him off in an unprecedented fashion, saying: "I tell you what the Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said, and you say ‘By Allaah, we will prevent them’!!" (reported by Muslim, 667).

But there are conditions attached to the permission for women to go to the mosque, as follows:
(1) She should wear complete hijaab.
(2) She should not go out wearing perfume.
(3) She should have the permission of her husband.

Her going out should not involve any other kind of prohibited acts, such as being alone in a car with a non-mahram driver. If a woman does something wrong like that, her husband or guardian has the right to stop her; in fact it is his duty to do so. And Allaah knows best.

And

Question:
What is the Islamic View in having a divider in the Masjid between the men and the women sections?

Answer:

Al-hamdu lillaah.

There is no problem with having a divider as long as the women are standing behind the men and as long as the women can follow the imam easily.

right right i have got some good news now the Ukthi called "Halimah Hussain" is my friend whom helped me alot to revert mashallah!
she lives in London with a brother called Jamal, && subhanallah she went to Saudi to do Aalimah course && subhanallah her arabic is beautiful, her mam was a Hindu && reverted to a muslim mashallah!

she even called me && told me to watch the programme at 8:oclock && i watched it but the funniest thing was that the recorder didn't know how to record :lol: i told Halimah that && she was like i didn't even know what was going on but subhanallah, her advise is mashallah just lost for words now but May Allah subhanawatallah reward her for teaching me whats right && showing me the path!

well Akhi in Saudi they men pray at front && women pray at back don't they or do they pary in didfferent sections?!

anyway it still doesn't matter if they read back or farward the thing that matters is why did the men "old" && "young" men argue with the sisters i mean first the said "go home" then they slam the door on there face so the sisters had to pray on the pavement!! && then when they complained sveral times they give them an unclean room Ya Allah!! wich smell like poo! well thats what my friend told me when i called her yesaday "Halimah" she told me it stunck like mad! how can they do that! then they said to the sisters you should cover your faces" whats there problems if they should or not! i mean first of all they should be more considerate && be more respectful && talk in a calm manner not yelling outside on raod && then slamming the door what ingnorant men! :offended:

La'ah am trying to say that little things just make such a big deal i mean should we as muslims give room for others && not be selfish when it some to salah?! because the first thing that we will be questioned on is salah! so why can't women exactly pray in a mosque i mean okay there going to be Mollies whom don't want to see women but what are they going to do in Janah?! i know there not goign to look at them because there will be beautiful things there but at the end of the day that programme was all to get the message across people that this is how people treat there muslim sisters && even if they didn't want the sisters to pray in the mosque the best thing would be sit down && talk in a well-mannered way not yell across the road && then slam the door YA ALLAH!

No indeed i agree there actions were pathetic and unislamic as stated any beleiver has a right in a mosque no matter a woman or man but im reffering to the program and its timing at the moment with all this niqab issue an terrorist issues we dont need any more bad light and this issue is understood by many that its not all muslim men but majority watching need but an excuse to feel more hate and this was just ahelpful hand at that ...

showing almost as if all muslim men are like this!?? when it is not the case...

and that bad light does not help islam nor sisters nor brothers...

those brothers who act in such sick ways should wake up and realise what the quran has said that mens strength is not there to oppress women it is there to protect them we are equal in the eyes of allah...

The Masjids in my area allow woman to enter, Even on FRIDAY! :uuh: I mean there is no space in the Mosque for all the brothers to pray, and they let the sisters in :uuh:which I am against BUT the food they bring is :playing: and the Iftar food was :playing::playing::playing:

Sisters do not have to pray in the mosque, I think its better for them to pray at home but at the same they should have their space in the Mosque to do other Islamic activities Insha'Allah

This documentary has done nothing but added a bullet to the guns of the enemies of Islam, the title "Woman only Jihad" (:uuh:) just says it all for me . You don't go to non-muslims with problems of the ummah and expect them to fix it, after we consider ourselves to be of the rightly guided don't we? Honestly in what way does showing disunity amongst the Ummah and arguments amongst muslims help the non-muslims perspective of Islam? Without a shadow of a doubt more bad then good has been done by this documentary... how the enemies of Islam must be drowning in their own laughter right now...
couldnt agree with you more! i dont understand why they didint just send a letter to the head of mosque stating their opinions and then if they refuse then take action, hoever gatecrashing a mosque on friday i think was out of order and then praying on the street? what was that about!!!!!!!!!!:grumbling i agree women should be allowed in mosques, as it will strengthen the community, but better ways of approaching the matter would have been better. also threre are mosques which women are allowed why not attend there?

salam kittygyal, i am going to be blunt with what i saw in the documentary, the women were not acting as women should, i mean how would you feel if a whole load of brothers stood outside a womens side of the mosque(yes! thats right, "SHOCK "HORRO", there are mosques which let women in, its just for some reason MPAC didnt choose to show these as it didnt help their political cause!!)..

so back to my point
How would you like it if a group of brothers gathered outside a womens congregation and started hassling them, and making them feel uncomfortable, and worse still bringing a national camera crew with them!! how would you feel, would you welcome them with open arms!!! if i was to meet you in the street and i started shouting at you, would you reply nicely and calmly or would you react in a way that i first approached you?

Also another thing, when that guy from MCB gave them advice on how to sort the problem they had out e.g. speaking to the comittee members wives, they said "Oh why should we speak to them!! we should be able to speak to the comittee directly" do these sisters not understand the concept of modesty, i for one would feel uncomfortable if a whole load of complete strangers came from the other side of britain and started demanding things(and worst still muslim sisters!!) The guy from MCB clearly tried to help them out but NO, it just wasnt enough, because that is the problem with MPAC(they want too much, too soon). Let me ask you a question, ok, so they wanted access to the mosque at Jumma prayers and the comittee members did not allow it, would it not be suitable for them to ask a person that would have influence over the comittee members?? yes you say, they asked MCB, but MCB do not have any kind of jurisdiction over every mosque in this country, so would it not have been better to approach their wives?? or would that not make good TV??

i for one dont see a problem, women are allowed in the mosque, where there are SUITABLE environment for sisters, not just at the back, where every MALE mosque gooer can easily fall under the influence of the shaitaan and take a second look at the sisters, the women in a mosque should be COMPLETELY segregated from the males and if there is no complete segregation then im sorry, but women should not be allowed in that particular mosque for their OWN benefit(to protect their modesty)

I would like to congratulate those sisters as i hope they are enjoying their 15minutes of fame on a completely unfounded and baseless arguement that will further worsen the crisis the muslims are in at this moment, and also congratulations to MPAC, you are now on the map!!

and this is because in this situtation muslim are doing some things which is shame (the complete meaning of the word), shame , because we are the ones who should be the best example for equality, and here we comes with some issues that are going to give points to those who fight against Islam and why shouldn't women be allowed to enter Mosque? we know that women are prefered to pray home, but how can they forbid women entering mosque? what is the base of this ? subhanallah, I dont know how we are surviving when we are sepereated and having this issues which are not supposed to exist, verily Allah helps Islam, cuz without Allah subhanau we teala the term Islam/Muslim would not exist anymore for what things we are doing.

No it is not for their 'own benefit'. It is only because of your own benefit, and your inability to control your gaze and lusts.

You yourself have actually admitted that you easily fall under the influence of shaitan - so clearly all you are thinking about is your own benefit:

not just at the back, where every MALE mosque gooer can easily fall under the influence of the shaitaan and take a second look at the sisters

I support the movement in taking culture out of religion that says the womans place is only in the home tied to the kitchen sink. SubhanAllah, organisations like MPAC are taking an active role in bringing about change (Imams should be people who the youth can also relate to not someone shipped over from Asian Sub-Continent and the voice of the Muslim woman should be acknowledged more than it is in some societies) BUT astagfirrulah, shouting on the streets with no Adaab at all? In short, i thought that was really distasteful.

Yes, this debate does need to take place but with respect. There is little need for people to start acting like toddlers deprived of sweets.

Ukthi i just wana correct you waht do you mean "and u dnt even have 2 move!" in Salah you HAVE to move like actions :rollseyes && also about getting rewards at home more NO that is tottally wrong because you get more rewards in a mosque aswel NOT only for home! && what can you do well basically like what the sisters did they strived for Jihad so thats what we should do! they experienced it && now they understand how they been treated by muslim elderly brothers! :(

LOL, ye my source was unreliable i guess...got to see it my self. Just for the record I agree that Sisters should have a space for themselves in the mosque, read my 1st post on this thread Insha'Allah, and most people is not all the people in this forum would agree with this. The method used to get access to a mosque in this case was not right is the general feedback. Remember. I think about 60% of the mosque in London have woman mosque space. surely its not as bad as some make it out to be, init :?

It was mentioned earlier that while it is better for women to pray at home, they are allowed to go to the Mosque provided certain conditions are met. I think what is more important in the case of this documentary, as many have already mentioned, is the manner in which the issue was handled. If it is better for women to pray at home, and the local Mosque does not have space for women to pray there, was there a need to make a public outcry that not only angered the local community but also damaged the reputation of Muslims at large? I think that the issue should have been sorted out in an Islamic manner between the parties concerned, as opposed to broadcasting it for millions of people to see as though Islam does not provide the answer already.

As for complaining that these sisters were "abused" or that the door was "slammed" in their face, it isn't really surprising considering what they were doing in the first place. Most of us are probably commenting on this from watching a TV programme, and we all know too well how accurately the media often portray Muslims, so before being overcome by our emotions, I think it is important to first ascertain the facts and look at what Islam actually says.
